Exactly. Navionics does not require cell or wifi to work once you have the app and you've downloaded the chart that you need. We use it throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean in places where we are days away from any cell service.

Not all the facts are known.

In a fleet of assistance tow boats, it is possible to have 4 different kinds of chartplotters or more.

Also for the captain to have a company provided cel phone without all the paid for apps.

Asking for a nav cut isnt all that unimagineable based on experience and quality of newer captains and the quality or diversity of boat equipment.

Expediting to the customer is foremost.
